    Thankyou peeps, and thankyou to everyone on here who have kept me in the loop on car's whch have been advertised. She's a good honest car it would seem, May have to change the nsf wing as there has been a very small blow in repair which im not overally happy with and its gonna bug me lol, I've only given it a rinse and wash down with wash n wax, Mammoth detail coming on this wkend so i will know more then, Its all original bodywork and the car seems completely standard.

    Everything works E/w mirrors even the headrests lol, Parcel shelf cover all there and the condition of the leather is immaculate.

    Its drives lovely and tight, though it seems a little tame compared to Brutus haha, I'm not complaining though as i can relax with this one, Brutus was a handful.

    Wow, you got one! :D

    Happy you found the right one in the end :thumb:


    Silver is a nice easy colour to keep looking good too. Looks pretty much like my old silver one :cool:

    I think the car will be happy in your ownership ;)

    Who’s car was that before? :)

    Nice work Gav. The best things in life certainly come to those who wait

    You have made a very good and correct choice. I'm so glad I managed to get back into one again.

    Now I've just got to crack on & sell the Volvo V40, Volvo XC90, LR FL2 & HiLux Invincible! Then maybe a little celebratory treat could be in order.
